Monday 2nd September - School reopens for the start of the 2019 Autumn Term.

 Weekly Routine 

Reading Records: To be returned & signed every day - Your child can update the record, but we would be grateful if an adult provides a signature to approve the comments. Please help your child to become more independent in this task whilst also bearing in mind that there is a potential for the whole class to earn a reward if 100% of books are returned and appropriately signed.

Outdoor PE: Tuesday pm -  Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather.                                     PE Kits should stay in your child's locker for a half term. There is no need to take them home mid term.      If your child has an after-school sports club, please ensure that an additional kit is used so that there are no missing     items for lessons. 


Indoor PE: Friday pm - Please provide shorts & a t-shirt for this session. Barefoot is acceptable but black pumps are preferred to avoid injury.                  


Library: Friday pm -Children will have access to the school library every fortnight where they can choose a book to read. We will be visiting the school library every other Friday starting on 18th January.  Children’s love of reading is something which is I hope to continue to nurture in 2019 - speaking to children about their book, and asking them questions about it would be very beneficial.

Weekly Homework

(Explore some of our revision methods at the bottom of the page)

In addition to the above, Class 8 offer home learning challenges. There are 3 over each topic and are an opportunity for your child to research and create a piece that suits their interests and aspirations. We recommend spending approximately 45 minutes per week on these tasks.
